On “The Rubin Report” Monday, BlazeTV host Dave Rubin shared a clip of White House press secretary Jen Psaki making outlandish excuses for Vice President Kamala Harris not wearing a face mask on the Senate floor during Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson’s confirmation vote on Wednesday and then again while indoors during Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson’s confirmation to the Supreme Court on Friday.
Psaki first told Fox News’ Peter Doocy last week that the vice president wore a face mask before she “went out” to the Rose Garden. When Doocy pointed out that Harris was seen giving Jackson a hug without a mask, even after learning that she had come into close contact with her communications director Jamal Simmons who tested positive for COVID-19, Psaki said Harris was having an “emotional moment” while “playing an important role in confirming or overseeing the confirmation of the first Black woman to the Supreme Court.”
The CDC recommends that anyone who is “up to date” on vaccines but is exposed to an individual with COVID should wear a mask for “10 full days” when in public.
On Monday, Psaki was asked about a video that was shared to Biden’s Twitter account, which clearly showed the vice president, along with first lady Jill Biden and others, gathered around President Biden in the Oval Office — all without masks.
“It was an emotional day. It was a historic day,” Psaki said in Harris’ defense. “There were moments when she was not wearing a mask inside, including in a photo, but she was wearing it 99.9% of the time.”

Dave also shared a clip of Psaki refusing to give a straight answer to Fox News’ Dana Perino about when and if the Biden administration’s mandate requiring masks on airplanes will expire or be renewed on April 18.
